Nov 17, 2009 Implications for Iran's Ability to Produce Fissile Material for Nuclear Weapons
Reuters reported on November 12th that Iran has 1,700 to 1,800 kilograms of low enriched uranium (LEU) – enough to make one to two bombs, and the IAEA released a report on November 16th in the wake of its inspection of Iran's new enrichment facility. In fact, as Greg Jones, a nuclear analyst explained earlier in a technical bulletin and follows up with this updated analysis, Iran might not be able to make any bombs or could possibly make as many as two with this amount of material and could have the potential "breakout" capacity to build a weapon as early as 2010.
